You can describe Jake Blauvelt in many ways, but two words that resonate with the dynamic rider are: Well Balanced. From his aggressive riding to everyday life, Jake focuses tons of his energy on being well balanced. Yes, Jake kills it on the board, but to be able to consistently perform at such a high level demands dedication and hard work. Jake eats well, unplugs from everything by going fly-fishing, and knows he’s super fortunate to be able to do what he does.
